Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Prayer Seems Insubstantial


God demands our best
we are only human
it is not always possible

to give all of our best
restraints of age health
time attitude ability

training confidence
external factors
insomnia fatigue stress

partner problems
bereavement
continuing crisis's

all effect potential
human optimum ability
has many influences

yet God empowers
miraculous options
common place miracles

prayer seems insubstantial
scientifically illogical
yet God saves as God wills

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
